Rosemary Vogel charged with first-degree attempted murder for allegedly trying to kill her 66-year-old husband Nurses at Chandler Regional Medical Center in Arizona caught Vogel manipulating IV line and then trying to dispose of its contents Medical tests of 'brown substance' found in IV line and on syringe needle confirmed it was fecal matter
An Arizona woman has been charged with attempted murder after police say she injected fecal matter into her hospitalized husbands IV line.
Rosemary Vogel, of Sun Lakes, was arrested Thursday after a nurse caught the 65-year-old handling her husbands IV line, which was found to contain a brown substance, police said.
A hospital lab test identified the matter in the IV line as feces, and a trace amount of the same brown substance also was found in the needle of an otherwise empty syringe found in Vogels purse, according to police.
When it was searched in the hospital, Vogels pocketbook contained a total of three syringes, including two with a clear liquid, police said.
Records showed that Mrs Vogel is a registered nurse who formerly worked at the hospital, Chandler Regional Medical Center.
Investigators plan to conduct forensic tests on all the materials involved over the next week or two, police Sgt. Joe Favazzo said.
However, the hospital had to test the brown substance in the IV line immediately for treatment purposes.
The lab came back with fecal matter, he said.
The incident occurred after the 66-year-old man had undergone a heart procedure. Hes expected to survive that, as well as the alleged attempt on his life.

She injected the feces. I'll bet the husband had a large life insurance policy and a large amount of money to inherit.
What a nasty nasty way to die. Death by infection via feces injection into your blood stream.
UGLY woman, inside and out.
GOOD GOD I’m glad that thing is not my wife.
Does FR have a can’t make this s*** up ping list? Just wondering if it does.
Greed is an ugly thing.
I hope that the husband recovers fully and that the woman repents of what she did.
Well there is a women who really needs to be rehabilitated! It’s just crazy. They will probably release her on bail so she can finish the job!
He needs to ‘dump’ her pronto.
Pun intended. That’s sneaky, low down dirty and deserves a good flush away.
“One bad apple is not representative of the whole bunch” ping. ;-)
Seriously, we know of another profession where it’s fellow practitioners would all be speaking up in defensive posture for their trade, don’t we? But no fellow nurses seem to be coming forward to defend this criminal. Strange.
Wondr n ...... how many patients tried her patience....over the years?
Reminds me somehow of police......on motorcycles.....after work.......ahhh nevermind its gone now.
Maybe for the afterlife but here on earth she’s not fit to remain pod
They all settled down after the brown IV.
Why don’t we see a picture of the husband? He probably looks like ELMER FUD!
Looks like she fell out of the ugly tree and hit every branch on the way down.
Looking at her photo, I’d be willing to bet there is another woman involved.
NO, But I am thinking about all the guys on Free republic who always judge a story by the womans looks, I figured my time has finally come to return the favor. It ‘s all done with sarcastic humor. Sorry if you are not on-board.
